Lanette’s Blog: It’s The Little Things
Written by Lanette Hansen on June 24, 2020
A birthday tradition in the Hansen household is a cake from The Chocolate Shoppe. It’s magnificent and I highly recommend one for your next birthday… or random Tuesday, every day is a great day for one of these masterpieces. So last month I was online ordering my husband’s cake for curbside pickup… and I came across the option of ordering an ice cream sandwich kit. This was The Chocolate Shoppe on Midvale… I’m not sure if the other locations are doing it. You choose your cookie flavor(s); chocolate chip or Heath. Then you choose your ice cream flavor… then you can add on an additional topping that you roll the outsides of your ice cream cookie in… because that’s needed… obviously. Well, last Friday I decided to get one for our family to enjoy for Father’s Day weekend…and got one for my brother-in-law and some good friends who showed up a couple months ago with a build-your-own donut kit from Greenbush Bakery and it made our day. The folks at The Chocolate Shoppe were amazing as always, it was fun to do the drop-offs and… oh my gosh, everything was so delicious! I tell you this for a couple reasons. First, because The Chocolate Shoppe is a top-notch, local business and I wanted to brag on them. Second, because at this point… even when we’re starting to open our circles a little bit… it’s still about the little things. A fun project as a family and a cute delivery for another family. Pay it forward when you can and remember to cherish the little things.
